My neice had a baby earlier this year and I decided to weave a baby-blanket. And, of course, when I gave it to her she said: "Oh! Is this knitted?".
I get that a lot.

Here it is:



Here is a closeup of the weave:


Luckily the colours matched the nursery perfectly.

It is lovely, I like how you used the variegated thread. Is Huck lace difficult? I have yet to try it. It looks fantastic.

Actual weaving time was about 1 1/2 or 2 hours.

WOW that is great.

I want to weave one of those. 

I am starting weaving next month and the place I am learning at has one of those looms.  Do you mind if I take your pic to show the teacher?


What yarn did you use?
